. >> and further to this issue of trust, the president took aim at mr. romney for misleading voters with egregious and desperate claims that chrysler is moving jeep production to china. >> it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. >> no, it isn't what being president is all about, but it is what the romney campaign is all about, as he demonstrated today in wisconsin trading rolled up sleeves for his salesman's suit and warning voters that a vote for the president could mean another recession, among other horrors. >> the same path we're on means $20 trillion in debt in four years. it means crippling unemployment continues. it means stagnant take-home pay, depressed home values, and a devastated military, and unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> yes, i guess someone told mr. romney it's the day of the dead. all he's missing there are a few skeletons as stage props. hang on, wha
, quote, glossy campaign video for mr. romney that described him as charismatic and authentic. and is it normal for people at a noncampaign storm relief event to carry t-shirts that attack the president? but this event turned awkward, too. governor romney's warning to slash fema so today he refused to answer questions about it. >> reporter: would you eliminate fema if you were president? would you eliminate fema if you were president? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> that didn't work, so reporters went outside and asked him again. >> reporter: governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> reporter: governor, you haven't said what you would do with fema. why won't you answer any questions on it. >> no response. he has no answers. maybe that's why the guy who gave the keynote address at this convention is praising his opponent. >> the president has been great. the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> appreciating the president's leadership in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan
on the romney campaign plane that is end the near. indied, that was evident today in colorado springs with mr. and mrs. romney showing evident wear and tear, even getting a bit misty-eyed from the long flight. >> it has been quite a journey. it's coming to a close. we have three more days. >> it's no wonder emotions are running so high, particularly with new hoel o. polls out today showing romney down six in critical ohio. down two in his absolute must win florida. six, seven, eight years of campaigning and it's come down to this. romney still combing through the president's speeches trying to find anything that he might tether his message to, this time a line best served cold. >> yesterday the president said something you may have already heard, that i found troubling. spoke to an audience and said voting is the best revenge. he's asking us -- he is asking his supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for love of country. >> oh, for the love of christmas, three days to go. let's get right to our panel. with me here at democracy plaza is professor james peterson of lee high unive
their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in
understands business and i do and that's why i'll be able to -- >> i'm not sure that mr. romney realizes that this week everyone's been reminded that americans need much in a president than the ability to make money. moments ago, another man noted for his business expertise, now leader of the nation's largest city, independent mayor mike bloomberg, has just endorsed president obama for four more years. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "47 percent." and joy reid managing editor of thegrio.com. of who always brings 100%. >> borrowing the words of calvin coolidge who said the business of america is business. the most respected businessman turned politician mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. what do you make of that move? >> what was interesting was one of the reasons mayor bloomberg cited, which was climate change. looking at the devastating impact of the storm sandy -- >> due mean that nonsensical, mumbo jumbo, nonsense that isn't believable. >> we will remember when mitt romney joked, actually joked, about ri
way across the parking lot to get the governor on stage for his event so we can cover it. mr. romney had not mentioned the president by name over the course of the last few days in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. it was a respite of the politics. but that all came to an abrupt end when the president returned to the trail today and mr. romney was very aggressively going after him for having suggested earlier this week something that he had proposed at the beginning of the year and was rejected by republicans. the idea of a consolidation of a host of government departments and agencies under one new cabinet secretary for business. mr. romney took that and laughed at it watch. we don't need a second of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business and i do. that's how i will get this economy going. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13th. a proposal for smaller, smarter and more efficient government. i thought that's the sort of thing that republicans supported. >> well, it is certainly the
and stalled wage growth, if any at all. >> reporter: and mr. romney mocked mr. obama for this proposal he outlined earlier. >> i said i want to consolidate the government agencies, we should have one secretary of business, instead of nine different departments. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business. and i do. >> reporter: this afternoon in richmond, mr. romney called on supporters to give to the red cross but was interrupted by protesters. >> that is what caused this monster storm. >> reporter: at the center of the response to the storm, new york city's mayor michael bloomberg said that climate change contributed to the storm, and endorsed mr. obama as the best candidate to tackle the climate change, saying he could still inspire the hope he did four years ago, despite what mr. bloomberg called a disappointing four year term. and brian, there is still one significant event, tomorrow, the last monthly unemployment report, before the election. >> peter alexander, in virginia, thank you. with the romney campaign in vir
. mr. romney has gotten to 10%. very, very close. battleground, numbers are reversed. romney reached 14% of the likely voters in battleground states casting a ballot on tuesday. obama only got to 13%. they're even in the polls. aapparently they're even even in get out the vote effort. they're down to wire. no indication it will change in five days. >> dana: carl, thank you. we'll go to ed henry, with president obama in las vegas. ed, we have a new nickname for you coined by greg gutfeld. we thought you desevened one. election ed. take it away. >> reporter: i like it. that's great. just like campaign carl. bottom line, they are promising a new message for the president today. it will be more positive, less of the negative tone, ripping to mitt romney. this is his final case to what he did in wisconsin today, talking about what he would do in a second term. laying out that he wants to finish the change he talked about in the last four years. he did go negative on romney. not giving it up. he said romney claiming to be an agent of change and he knocked millions of people off the health ins
nominee as we close in on the election day. mr. romney has been spending a tremendous amount of time in the last couple of days talking about his desire to be a bipartisan president, reach across the aisle and deal with democrats to meet the challenge that nation faces, challenges he argues that mr. obama has not been able to meet and been too partisan and unwilling to meet with republicans on it. in the event in richmond, he singled out the house leader eric cantor and asked when is the last time you met with the president? cantor said it was a year ago. romney said i will not do that. i will meet often with the democrats and create the type of bipartisan agreements that move the country forward. he is making the argument that it's time for big change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign that he says the president hasn't stuck to. he will wrap up the third event in virginia beach, virginia today. fully ten more battleground states that he plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he will wrap it up with a big speech in new hampshire, where he has a vacation home. that
. but the desperate kitchen sink politics don't end there. mr. romney's pushing the widely debunk claim that president obama is waging a war on welfare. it's the same lame story with his comments about jeep shipping jobs overseas. that's all ugly enough. but then there's this. he's bringing out the king birther, donald trump, to make robo calls and campaign stops in key swing states and the ugliness extends beyond the walls. they have taken to the airwaves with this low piece of political slime. >> obama claimed in a muslim country that america is not a christian nation, said congress had better things to do when it reaffirmed in god we trust. better things than trusting god? like what? >> this is what a desperate campaign looks like. this is what it looked like when a candidate will go to anything that he can to win. no matter how objectionable, no matter how ugly. joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and "the daily beast." thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a su

romney is mr. romney's greatest handicap. this newspaper yearns for the more tolerant conserve t.i. of ronald reagan where it meant keeping the state out of people bead rooms as well as out of their businesses. mr. romney shows no signs of wanting to revive it." now, you know romney has become right wing when you look for the compassionate conservatism of ronald reagan. they also continue. "for all his business-like intentions mr. romney has an economic plan that works only if you don't believe most of what he says. that's not a convincing pitch for chief executive. and for all his short comings mr. obama has dragged america's economy back from the brink of disaster and has made a decent first of foreign policy. so this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him." now, if you call the guy you're endorsing the devil you know, that's one hell of an elbow! all right. worse than the devil
